Racism. It Stops With Me.
Our stand against racism
We have signed up to the 'Racism. It Stops With Me' campaign to raise awareness of the terrible impact of racist behaviour on those who experience it.
For those subjected to racism and racial profiling (the targeting of specific groups because of their ethnic background), it can have serious consequences. It can shatter their confidence and their sense of worth, and affect their work and studies. It works against our goal of building a fair, inclusive community.
Racism hurts us all.
Let's all be aware of racial behaviour and its impact. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
